'Lifestraw Steel' is a personal water filter that ensures safe and clean drinking water is always accessible. Whether you are an avid hiker or a globe-trotting traveler, this tiny device is perfect for making sure you never have to risk drinking unfiltered water.

Lifestraw Steel is a portable device that functions as a personal water filter. The device consists of a double steel case that resembles a large drinking straw. Inside the case is a 2-stage filtration system that contains an activated carbon capsule for removing bacteria, chlorine, protozoa and other organic chemical matter. The device does not require any batteries or power supplies and each filter can be used to consume up to 100 liters of clean water. As a result, users can use Lifestraw Steel to drink safely from nearly any water source.

In addition to helping hikers, campers and backpackers access clean water, the company also provides drinkable water for people in developing countries.
